Abstract

Today the most promising technologies for lifetime efficiency nd improved reliability include the use of smart materials structures. Biomedical applications of smart materials involve their use delivery of therapoutics, tissue engineering, cell culture, bioseparations, biomimetic actuators, mobilized biocatalysts, drug delivery and thermoresponsive surfaces. The use of biocompatible smart materials has revolutionized many areas of dentistry. Some of the smart materials used in dentistry include Shape memory alloys for orthodontic wires, coils and springs, Cercon smart ceramics, a dental restoration, offering extremely natural aesthetics paired with excellent durability, biocompatibility, "Smart composites with amorphous calcium phosphate stimulating repair of defective teeth, and Smart fibers which are hollow-core photonic-crystal fibres (PCFs) for the delivery of high-fluence laser radiation for ablating tooth enamel. An important aspect of smart materials used in various areas of dentistry is their excellent biocompatibility. These innovations in the material science have marked the beginning of an era of Bio-Smart Dentistry, a step into the future!.
